Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Peanut Butter - Use only natural peanut butter and make sure it does not contain an artificial sweetener called Xylitol, which can be very dangerous to dogs. Find organic brands that are better, not just for pets, but for your whole family too.
  • Bananas - Are great doggie treats because they are low in calories and high in fiber and vitamins. This will also make the Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats super creamy and naturally sweet.
  • Berries - You can use fresh or frozen berries of your choice. This is optional but will add great flavors to the dog treats!
  • Fruitable Baked Treats - There are several flavors to choose from, and all of them go well with this recipe. You can use different flavors per piece so your dogs can have variety. If your dogs love these treats as they are, they will go bonkers over this summer goodie!

How to Make Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

Aside from the ingredients, you will also need a blender and fun freezer-friendly dog treat molds. If you do not have a blender, you can also use a food processor. We like using doggie bite-sized molds so they can eat the treats easily.

Once you have all of these, just follow these simple steps:

  • 1) Make the Vegan Yogurt Mixture. Add the banana, peanut butter, and berries to the blender. Blend on high until you have a smooth and creamy mixture. Add two tablespoons of water if needed.
  • 2) Assemble. Pour the vegan yogurt mixture into the prepared molds ¾ of the way. Grab some halved Fruitable baked treats and press them into the filled molds until submerged.
  • 3) Freeze. Place the filled molds in the freezer for up to 6 hours or until they have properly set. Remove from molds and let your beloved pets enjoy themselves!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are frozen treats good for dogs?

Yes, they are! As long as you use organic and wholesome ingredients that are dog-friendly. In fact, frozen treats are a great way to make them relaxed and comfortable during summer.

How often can I feed frozen treats to my dog?

Since these are made of healthy, low-calorie ingredients, you can let your dog enjoy a few of them a day, especially when it is really hot. However, please remember that these are not a substitute for their main meals.

How long can they be frozen?

You can store these Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats in an airtight container for up to three months.

Some Helpful Tips!

  • Add a splash of water or plant-based milk if the vegan yogurt mixture becomes too thick.
  • If your dog is a messy eater like ours, we recommend feeding them outside to prevent a big clean up.
  • Aside from berries, you can use other fruits to flavor the treat. Try watermelon, apples, kiwis, and oranges. Make sure to remove the skin and seeds before using them.
